Homestay Program for International Students
(All international students must participate in Homestay)
Saint John’s Catholic Prep is committed to providing the best possible opportunity and a well-rounded experience for our international students as they attend our school. In order to provide them with the maximum benefit, our international students will live with American families. Our international education partner, Azure Education, will maintain a list of acceptable American families and will make arrangements for each student's homestay. The goal is for students to be immersed into the English language and culture, which will greatly enhance their classroom understanding.
If you are interested in becoming a homestay family, please contact:
Email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for wanting to be an Azure Education home stay. We strive in bringing in the best international students from China who seek to have a fulfilling study abroad experience. To me, the homestay experience can be just as or more rewarding to the student as being in the classroom.
Please see the process for becoming an AE homestay.
The general process is as described as follows:
1. Fill the AE Homestay Application Form. Please see the attachment. We can change the date later when we meet. Sorry I only had the Jan. 2014 copy on me when I sent this email but it's the same information.
2. Provide four pictures: A family picture, a house frond picture, a bedroom picture and a bath room picture. You can also provide living room, dinning room, etc.
3. Complete the Criminal background check. Please see the form attached.
4. A visit to your house
5. AE Student manager will review your application and approve it based on the process.
6. Upon approval, we will meet to sign the contract and W9 form.
Again, thank you for your interest and please complete the the forms and send them back to us immediately. Because the fingerprinting takes a little longer to be sent back, we can schedule a meeting before it's sent back to you if that fits your schedule.
Let me know if you have any questions and there are many places to do a LiveScan in your city. You are responsible for Live Scan fees (about $35)
